  • Clinton renews Harlem office lease

    November 08, 2010 10:00AM

    Former President Bill Clinton and 55 W. 125th St.

    Former President Bill Clinton has signed a 10-year lease renewal for his 8,715-square-foot office atop 55 West 125th Street and got a $100,000-a-year-discount for taxpayers, the Wall Street Journal reported. Under the Former Presidents Act of 1958, Clinton is afforded “suitable” office space by the government. Originally, his Harlem lease was one of the most expensive ever for a former president, but now he’s trumped by former President George W. Bush, whose 15,678-square-foot Dallas office lease costs $701,636 annually, according to the U.S. General Services Administration. Clinton’s new lease will total just under $400,000 for the first five years, less than the $506,777 he had been paying for the space prior to the renewal. The William J. Clinton Foundation, which pays for its own office space, also has around 19,000 square feet on the 11th and 13th floors of the building. The foundation’s lease expires next summer. [WSJ]



  • The Clintons and Clover Hill Farm in Bedford Hills

    Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton are reportedly looking to upgrade in
    Westchester, trading their suburban home in Chappaqua for a $10.9
    million estate set on 20 acres in Bedford Hills, according to the Post.
    The property, called Clover Hill Farm at 525 Harris Road, is located
    down a private road with a 7,000-square-foot main house, heated pool,
    artist studio, stable, plus two guesthouses. The 10-year-old main house
    has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms and is
    currently owned by Paul Wallace, the retired founder of the real estate
    firm Broadstone Group, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
    in May. The home hit the market in December, and the Clintons have
    visited multiple times and are planning to sign a contract within the
    month, a source said. Mady Wengrover of Coldwell Banker has the
    listing. Bedford Hills is also home to Richard Gere, Martha Stewart and
    Glenn Close. [Post]
